Se­lec­tive colour con­trol

Lo­cal ad­just­ment can also be valu­able in ex­er­cis­ing dif­fer­en­tial con­trol over colour. It’s easy to fall prey to the temp­ta­tion to over-sat­u­rate colours, given the tools that RAW pro­ces­sors of­fer and a near-uni­ver­sal ten­dency to en­joy in­tense hues. Here, us­ing con­trolled judg­ment is im­por­tant, as in this street shot where I knew I wanted to keep the pri­mary colours strong, yet with­out ex­ag­ger­a­tion. I used three ra­dial fil­ters: on the ear, hand and the spec­ta­cle lens, which re­ceived stronger sat­u­ra­tion.
